Summer Curriculum Writing is still in progress. ELA and Math are working to revamp their curricula to incorporate the new ILS (with Common Core). The new materials should be available online in late August or early September after final board approval.

Curriculum Information

In the summer of 2005 a standards aligned curriculum was written for language arts-reading and mathematics for all grade levels. Teams of teacher under the direction of dedicated department leaders worked through the Illinois Learning Standards and created learning outcomes and specific components for student learning at each grade level. The following summer those two academic core areas began to write standardized local assessments. These assessments gave the teachers an opportunity, for the first time, to have feedback on student learning for an entire grade level. That same summer, language arts-writing, science and high school special education outcomes and components were also written. Since those first two summers the process has continued as other areas have begun the curriculum writing process and then followed up the next summer with common local assessments. During the summer of 2009, the first cycle was completed and a standards based curriculum for language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, special education, physical education, health, fine arts, career and technical education, foreign language and ACPS (academic, career, personal and social development) are in place. The Board of Education formally adopted the learner objectives, found on this site, at their August 16, 2010 regular board meeting.
